Pronation
PRONATION

GAIT CYCLE
excessive pressure at the base of ‘great toe’ upon toe-off; 5th toe twisted and contracted
midfoot torsion causing foot and ankle to roll inward;
most often elongation of longitudinal arch;
an extreme case is flat foot
quick lateral strike; then reactive medial weight transfer thus causing excessive inward heel roll.

CAUSES
  • Gait, footwear, bone structure, hereditary, muscle and tendon misalignment, etc
SYMPTOMS
  • Knock knee (genu valgum)
  • Medial bunion (hallux valgus)
  • First metatarsal head, sesamoid pain and calluses
  • General pain and fatigue of the longitudinal arch
  • Heel spur symptom – (Plantar fasciitis)
  • Achilles tendonitis and/or calf pain
    Medial knee pain and hip
  • Hammer toes 4th and 5th digits
  • Great toe cross-aligned
  • Shoe outer-heel worn
SOLUTION
  • ‘2.ft Orthotics’ designed with medial wedge to control excessive inward roll and to realign the bones, muscles and tendons of the foot.
